Homespun Wool & Fibers are the BEST!

Farming is in my lineage for probably centuries. A few years ago, Life situations demanded my life to slow down as a nurse due to my health. So, not being one to sit on the couch & watch daytime television, I decided to invest in a few wool animals. Washing wools had some similarities to giving bed baths.🙂 I watched lots of Youtube videos on how properly care for various wools. Other people help me with the heavy stuff. and having a few wool animals just made sense. We have a few each: Alpacas, rare sheep, Mohair & Pygora goats.

Caring for shorn wool fell right in step with my upbringing of laying up and preserving food and commodities. You may have heard the old saying, "Waste not, Want Not". My parents, grandparents & lineage backwards processed their own farm products, My pioneer great great grandfather, born over 200 years ago, was a farmer turned weaver in his older years.

It all took time & we slowly began with simplistic hand tools and have over time added more efficient, simpler equipment that have led up to making, and purchasing of finer, more modern specialized fiber working equipment. But, sometimes the hand tools work best in given situations.

Nowadays, we process some of our wools, but others we send out to home Hand processors who gently care for the fibers. Shearing comes around every Spring & Fall, so wool products are coming & going much of the time. I personally love it! And, the house won't hold it all, so it has to be re-homed (aka selling) it to help feed the 4 legged wool makers.

To compliment our wools, we also feature a whole spectrum of other luxurious and multi function fibers depending on availability. and our ability to source them.

Upon availability we will have some Raw, Washed, Spinning \ tops, Rovings, Felting & Batts, Dyed, Homespun Yarns, Felts, Knits, Crochets, Weavings and vintage items from an era gone by, but still live on.

    The sheep, alpacas and goats do most of the work in growing the wools. Upon shearing folks removing their coats, we glean out hay bits, wash, comb/card & spin yarns on the spinning wheel, or send out for professional processing.
